7 Fantastic Uses for Hair on Hide
Using hair on hide (leather with the fur still on it) in design can be a fun, funky, rugged, rustic or classic way to add style to a room or furniture piece. Traditionally, hair on hide leather is applied to things like chair backs, the exteriors of upholstery pieces, or rugs… but, recently we have seen it used in so many more creative ways! When used in the right way and in the right space, hair on hide can add that exact little bold and catchy “something extra” that you’ve been striving for. Here are seven great examples of creative and traditional ways to use hair on hide in interior design:
1. Hair on Hide Tub: I have never seen anything like this! The hair on hide bath tub gives this bathroom an instantly chic and rustic modern look.
6. The Hair on Hide Dresser: This piece is VERY western, and it would not fit in just anywhere- it would need to find the perfect space and combination of other furniture pieces in order for it not to look over-done. That said, I love the contrast of the dark wood with the light hide, and I also love the nail head trim and ring pulls on the drawers!
7. Hair on Hide All Over: Okay okay, this one’s a little bit over the top… haha, get it? “Over the top?”!!! But seriously, this restaurant takes hair on hide to a whole new level. What do you think about the use of the cowhide on the walls and ceiling? Too crazy or fun and unique?
